We will be teaching you how to become an mc in Nigeria and how you can make money as a master of ceremony. In this article, you will learn how to become a Master of ceremonies also known as MC in Nigeria.

After reading this article, you will be able to MC any event be it a birthday, wedding, graduation party, corporate event, and more. The qualifications and requirements to become a professional MC in Nigeria. So read this article to the end.

Who is a Master of Ceremony?

A master of ceremony also known as an emcee or abbreviated as MC is a person who is the official host of a staged event or ceremony, convention, conference, or any other event. MCs are flexible. They can crack jokes and sometimes sing. The ability to be flexible is what makes the profession stand out from every other profession.

What are the Roles of an MC?

If you are looking forward to becoming an MC in Nigeria below are the roles of an MC.

1. To introduce VIPs and guests.

2. To entertain guests and make them feel relaxed.

3. To make sure programs go as planned by following the ‘order of program’.

4. To announce the cutting of cake and drinking of wines.

5. To start, conduct and conclude all ceremonies or parties.

There are other roles of master of ceremonies that are not general. They are specific to the program or event.

How to Become an MC in Nigeria

Here are steps to become a master of ceremony in Nigeria.

1. Believe in Gift or Talent

This is the first step to becoming an MC in Nigeria. As a youth aspiring to become an MC, there will be many doubts despite the fact that you are gifted in facing the crowd and addressing them. Sometimes, physical appearance can cause doubts or unbelief.

For example, a short man will never believe he has the physique of a mc. So it is for women. Women that are not pretty enough believe that they will not be able to control their audience. No matter the doubts you have as a mc in Nigeria you need to believe in yourself.

Not just believe in yourself but overlook your physical attributes or any other attributes you have on your mind that are causing hindrance for you. It is only when you believe in yourself your confidence will grow and show.

When you are confident in the way you look (comfortable in your own skin) and you are sure that you will always deliver you will not have a problem attracting and retaining clients or customers.

2. Get a Professional Training

If you are really serious about becoming a professional MC in Nigeria, you need to look beyond your talent for speaking and making people laugh. You need to get a training course from a recognized school. This school can be an online school or a physical school in Nigeria.

It all depends on your location and your availability. There are free schools online that will teach you and still give you a certificate for free. You just need to do your findings. This offer of advice is for those that are still hustling and do not have enough money to chase their dreams of becoming a famous emcee in Nigeria.

Getting certified will make you stand out from other MCs in Nigeria. This will also help you to dictate your charges.

3. Set Charges for your Services

How much you charge per show or event as an MC in Nigeria is also very important. There is no point in being famous or popular and yet you are poor or cannot adequately take care of your family. How much you charge as an mc depends on so many factors.

It depends on your qualifications, experience, the show or event you are handling, and more. However, if you are a bit confused and do not know your price range. Averagely, MCs in Nigeria charge any fee from #20,000 – #200,000 per show. It can be more than this it depends on your bargaining power and packaging.

4. Use Social Media for Publicity 

Social media is a powerful tool. It is more powerful than a professional website because it reaches more people and it creates an influencer impression as your followers increase and time pass. As an MC that want to look more professional you must create social media accounts to share your events and passed works.

A Facebook page, Twitter account, and Instagram account will go a long way as long as there is consistency. To create an influencer impression you need more people to follow you than you follow them.

5. Work with Event Planners

As an emcee in the entertainment industry, it is impossible to survive on your own. Just like it is impossible for an island to survive on its own. Anywhere there is an island there are other islands surrounding the island.

Forget all the competition mentality that other MCs are there to still your clients and prospects you need to connect with everyone in the entertainment industry. This could range from DJs, sound engineers, and stage managers to most importantly event planners.

Doing this is help you get more anchoring jobs and help you know more influential people. So start now. Do not wait to get recognition until you start introducing yourself to others in your industry. Always be the first to introduce yourself to people – telling them what you do.

6. Build your Network 

Whether we like it or not, every profession has its network. It is not important to be in close contact with everyone as time goes by you can simply build a network of MCs or join an existing one. Depending on the kind of network you might need to pay dues or it is completely free. With everyone you feel is suitable for you join it.

Conclusion 

All in all the journey to becoming a well-known MC or moderator in Nigeria is not an easy journey. It requires more. Like we usually say – talent is not enough. You need to go through all these steps especially if you want to stand out from the crowd. 

You need to also develop a thick skin (a never give attitude) because there will be days you wish you chose another carrier. On these days, you need to be strong and courageous. I believe all these will go a long way.
